Derrick White Over 1.5 Made Threes (-113)
With Game 6 of the NBA Finals on tap for tonight, let's take a look at some player props to consider.
The Boston Celtics are down 3-2 to the Golden State Warriors and in need of a big game from everyone to force a decisive Game 7. This game features another close 3.5-point spread in favor of the home Celtics and a modest 210.0-point over/under.
With a three-point prop sitting at only 1.5, I'm looking to the over for Derrick White. White has been a bit hot and cold for the Celtics, scoring 12, 16, and 21 points in three games this series while being held to a combined 8 points in the other two games.
In the three games White posted 12 points or more, he hit at least 3 three-pointers in all of them. He comes off the bench for the Celtics and has been taking an average of 4.6 three-point attempts per game this series.
With his consistent shot volume and the line at only 1.5, the over on White's three-point prop is the spot to go tonight.
Al Horford Over 7.5 Rebounds (-134)
Al Horford's rebounds prop is another spot to look at tonight.
When I'm leaning on the under for the game total, I look to correlate that with the overs on rebounding props. The under implies tighter defense and more missed shots, which means more rebounding opportunities for the players. It's pretty straightforward, and I'm going with over 7.5 rebounds for Horford tonight.
He's been over this mark in three of the five games this series, and he's averaging 9.1 rebounds per game throughout the entire playoffs. Horford is projected for 7.9 rebounds tonight by numberFire.
The -134 juice might be a bit much for some, but Horford has been consistent, has a strong projection, and should be out there for another 30-plus minutes tonight.
